This book- perfect for children and adults- is so great on so many different levels. Although the characters are shapes, Silverstein uses them in a brilliant way to tell a heart-warming story. This book tells the story of a missing piece on a journey to find the shape to make it whole. It is amusing, depressing, magical, and uplifting all at the same time. Children may find the story amusing, but adults may find it also exemplifies the pressure and struggle of finding the perfect partner.

This book is perfect for lovers of art, feminism, and memoirs! Although I have always been intrigued and inspired by her preformance art, Marina Abramovic lets her readers into the deep, personal aspects of her life. This was a book I did not want to put down and stayed with me long after. I found that the more Marina discovered about herself, the more I learned about myself as well.
